We are ready for you Riverfire

The Fireworks that stop our city are only one sleep away! If you’re a bit disorganised like we are and still wondering how on earth it is already the end of September, well you still have time to get your Riverfire plans happening. 

Whether your keen to head into Southbank with happy-go-lucky Brisbane locals, dine at Eagle St Pier or hit a local hill with city views there are plenty of options for lovers, friends and families!

In case you were wanting to head into South Bank, just remember that it is an alcohol-free space for the duration of Riverfire. It is also recommended that you use public transport, uber or wear your walking shoes to get in and out of the city tomorrow! There are plenty of river and road closures around the city; information about river and road closures can be found here.

If you’re looking for somewhere a little different to see Riverfire we have got you covered. Why not try Eagle Street Pier with stunning views of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge. Enjoy a Japanese buffet feast at Nagomi, with an unlimited buffet of food and a glass of house wine all for only $45!
